After coming upon the apparent remains of a stagecoach, Coop tells Hawks the story of the Earp brothers and The Silver Lady, a woman who died in a fiery stagecoach wreck with $20,000 in silver coins melted around her. First assuming her to be singer Anne Reed, a townsman in gave her an elaborate burial service, but then Anne Reed arrived very much alive, and revealed that the real Silver Lady was a saloon girl. The Earps and Doc Holliday investigate who attempted to hold up the stage and caused the accident. And yes, it's not a misprint, Michael Burns is really playing Morgan Earp in this episode rather than his regular role as Barnaby. Written by rbecker28

Silver Lady took it with her
31 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This next to last Wagon Train episode served as pilot for a western series about the brothers Earp which was never picked up. Michael Burns who played Barnaby West on Wagon Train played Morgan Earp with Don Collier as Wyatt Earp and Don Galloway as Virgil Earp. The only other Wagon Train regulars are Robert Fuller who tells the story of The Silver Lady to Terry Wilson.

Burns was riding shotgun on a stagecoach from Tucson to Tombstone when it was held up, the driver killed and Burns thrown clear from the coach. The passenger was a woman and when the coach fell off a cliff it caught fire and $20,000.00 in silver coins melted all over her body. It's thought that it might have been a famous singer, but when Vera Miles shows up in Tombstone it's clear it was someone else. And the Earp brothers have a mystery on their hands.

No mystery to the viewer though, the mystery is why she was killed. It would have been a better episode had we kept the identity a mystery. Others in the cast include Henry Silva as Doc Holliday and Denver Pyle as Old Man Clanton.

I guess it was too soon after Wyatt Earp had been seen and Hugh O'Brian so identified with the laconic lawman.
